STUDENTS TAKE FFA HONORS: The Future Farmers of America chapters from Jefferson High School and Washington High School received top honors during the 95th National FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis last month. The high schools were the only two West Virginia FFA chapters to receive a three-star emblem recognition at the National Chapter Award program. The three-star emblem recognition highlights chapters that have excelled in offering and meeting goals developed earlier in the year by its members. It is the highest ranking a chapter can receive in this program.
BRIDGE PROJECT UNDERWAY: Beginning this Thursday (Nov. 17), a new traffic pattern will open on Middleway Pike at the bridge over the Opequon Creek at the Berkeley County line.
A temporary bridge will be put in use on the highway while the old bridge is being demolished. A new speed limit will be in place to slow traffic through this detour and work zone. Motorists are advised to use caution while traveling through this area.
